As reported by the Ukrinform, Pistorius stated that the package includes four additional IRIS-T air defense systems, 155mm shells, and anti-tank mines.

When asked about the number of shells, Pistorius clarified that this package includes 20,000 shells in addition to almost 140,000 for next year. “So we’re talking about a total of 160,000 units for 2024-2025, after which, from early 2025, we hope to increase,” the German defense minister explained.

Regarding the prospects of supplying Taurus long-range cruise missiles to Ukraine, Pistorius briefly responded that he has no new information on such plans.
